Tom Malterre - A Deeper Look at Nutrition, Life and True Healing
What if our state of dis-ease is coming from a lack of connection? A connection of where health and all of life comes from? What if the soil we grow our food in, the air that we breathe, and the water we drink are the key to sustaining health? What if these are the true currencies of life itself? After attaining two degrees in nutrition sciences, getting advanced training from the Institute for Functional Medicine, lecturing across the US and Canada, becoming a faculty member of the Autism Research Institute, and watching as thousands of my clients change their connection to their food, their earth, and their health, the message is becoming clearer every day. If we are kind to earth in which our food comes from, it gives us more abundance than we could ever imagine. My goal now is to share this insight as much as I possibly can and I am doing this through the Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook, Nourishing Meals book, and the website WholeLifeNutrition.net. I am reaching our to physicians and other practitioners with hard sciences and clinical case studies in my Progressive Practitioner Coaching Programs so I can share the genius of Functional Medicine and it’s understanding of these principals of life. It is my belief that we can end unnecessary suffering through two simple means. Awareness and gratitude.
